The Martin Luther King, Jr. Day of Wellness health event is just one of our response efforts to address alarming health inequities in the New Orleans community, particularly in low-income communities of color. During these times, community health organizations must work together to create positive, meaningful, and uplifting ways people can create a culture of safety and care.
